I am honored to have met Paul and call him my friend. I met him in Melbourne Beach in 2014. I heard someone whistling everyday and had no idea who that was. Then I saw that man on a bike. He was Paul. We made friends. I listened to his stories, his trivia’s, and he asked questions about my family and always prayed for me. We became very good friends. I love Paul. Sending him prayers.
Love to Joannie, Francis, and the boys.

Fran, so sorry to hear of your dads passing.
I’m glad you both got some quality time to spend together this spring/summer.
He was a very interesting person, who could tell the best stories. If anyone was in a bad mood, your dad would have them laughing within 5 mins.
I know my life was better after meeting him.
I also know, he was very proud, of you and your boys.
Give your mom a hug for me, and now I owe you, about 20 zillion of them.
He was a good family man, that led a great life, and will be remembered for bringing good and happiness to this world.
They certainly don’t make them like they used to.
Rest In Peace my friend! ❤️
